injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

What screams “masculine” more than playing with dolls?

Or so Herobuilders, a Connecticut toy company hopes.   Worried that today’s men are becoming emasculated by the role models they’re seeing in TV advertising, the company has created action figures out of what it considers to be TV commercial “manly” men.  There's “Meyhem Guy” from Allstate, “Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man In The World,” and my personal fave, “Old Spice Guy.”

"I'm tired of all this sensitivity in men," creator Emil Vicale said. "These are men finally acting like men."

Vicale believes that by playing with the super macho dolls men will start to identify with tough guys again and regain their masculinity.

Yeah.  Kind of like playing with fake-boob-Barbie provided such a wonderful role model for generations of women.

At $50 a piece, all three dolls talk and are anatomically correct.   "I didn't skimp in the anatomy department with the Old Spice Guy," Vicale said proudly. "You can see him flaccid. You can see him erect."

And they say American entrepreneurship is dead. 

Something tells me the wives will be playing with these plastic marvels more than their husbands. 


Lady Gaga says dump Baby Gaga…

Looks like we weren’t the only ones unimpressed with breast milk ice cream.  Lady Gaga has slapped the titty treat maker with a “cease and desist” and reportedly called it “nausea inducing.”

The owner of the London store now claims the ice cream was just meant to promote a philosophical discussion, "Is it better if we use milk from cows injected with hormones who are artificially induced with pregnancy every few months, or human milk?"

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want to think that hard about ice cream. 

The product is no longer for sale, but the store owner says he finds it ironic that the superstar calls his product "nausea inducing" when she has been known for "wearing rotting cow's flesh."

Point.  Set.  Match.


A cease and desist order we’d really like to see…

In an 8 to 1 decision, the Supreme Court upheld Westboro Baptist Church’s right to spew their vile hate speech at military funerals.   

We’re not sure how the words “God” and “hate” can be used in the same sentence by folks purporting to be “Christians,” and feel that the case should have been brought by the Deity himself (and no, Charlie, I’m not talking about you) as a clear case of slander.

Now that would have been must-watch television.

“I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”  Source disputed, but often credited to Voltaire, shows that the French have always been a pain in the ass.


File under "goofy speech…"


Finally, continuing with our free speech theme, here’s Jimmy Kimmel’s take-off on “The Kings Speech” starring our own lovable George W. Bush.

And now what do you have to say?
